GRAYED - NICKLAUS GRAY
Beautiful thing about polymath MFer Nicklaus Gray dropping singles weekly is I can just pick my faves to write about at this point cause there's so much content. Dude has dropped an album's worth of songs this year as singles (peep 'em) and this one feels like a crescendo, a wondrous blend of thunder, simple rappy aggressiveness and deft MCing, basically toggled between.
"upgrayed upgrayed upgrade / bitch hold it down like duct tape"
It's one of those songs that you find yourself asking throughout, "why do I keep saying DAYMN?"
Not sure what the song is about, it's just wild energy; it's just Gray putting a little lightning in a bottle for that azz, as one does.
